Small dinner party for 7 - everything was perfect, from prep time to hors d'oeuvres to main course to clean up. Chef Rich Mancini and assistant Cathy DiGiovanni were engaging but not intrusive, professional, creative and made optimal use of somewhat limited utensils in my kitchen. Every single menu item was fresh, delicious, perfectly proportioned and presented. Could not have been better!!
Great food! would have given 5 stars but I ordered a special plate for my friend who has food allergies and is gluten free we never got the order that we paid for. I was also charged additional fees that were never agreed upon in the original contract.
We hired Ravi and his team to cater our wedding and they were incredible. We had a great tasting with Ravi and his head chef and we knew their food would be a hit. When we arrived at cocktail hour, the appetizers were already gone! People loved them. Thankfully, Ravi and his servers had set some aside for the wedding party without us even asking. His staff worked hard serving our guests and tending bar. They were fun and incredibly hard working. We would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a creative catering company that is capable of customizing an unforgettable menu. The whole process was very easy and Ravi and his company were able to take care of everything we needed without hesitation. Thank you!
I happened to find Inglenook Catering and Joe on a quick search for local caterers. I wanted to try a different caterer with a different menu. My daughter picked the menu, and it was pretty traditional....Italian beef, Italian sausage, fried chicken, mostacolli, green beans almandine, and scalloped potatoes. Truly, I wanted to explore other items on the menu, but since I offered and it was her choice, that's what I went with. The Italian beef and sausage were homemade and definitely amazing! Great flavor and seasonings! The fried chicken was delicious as well! Everything was warmed and ready to serve. Would definitely order from Joe again! Thank you so very much for the prompt communication and coming to assist with the drop off. My guests throughly enjoyed your catering Joe, and I will definitely recommend you to my friends! Would love to try other entrees next time!!
I've used Just a Bite several times to cater parties. The owner is extremely easy to work with and made great menu suggestions. My events had themes and the food was perfectly matched to the theme. The food was beautifully presented and tasted great. I know things are made from scratch with quality ingredients and you can taste the difference. Nothing makes a hostess feel better than having guests say positive things about the food, and that happens every time I use this caterer. Most importantly, the owner delivered beyond my expectations and stayed within my budget. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this caterer to friends and family.
Professional caterer with great menu and quality food. Excellent service.
We have had many private chefs and caterers. We have found our “go to” chef service. Food was amazing. Mike and Matt were fun. They entertained the kids at the bar as they cooked, served.. and cleaned up. If you have never had a personal chef, try them. If you have before, uplevel to them. And by the way.. the cost was a bargain. Dinner for 8 with wine and beer pairing Less than $100 per person Insanely goid!
Green Eyed Girl in the Kitchen and her team should be your one and only choice for catering your special event! Her attention to detail and professionalism made my son and daughters wedding spectacular! Oh... did I not mention how amazing the food taste... from the chicken and waffle bites, to the crab stuffed mushrooms everything was a hit! She is my new caterer!
Kirk is an AMAZING Chef and wonderful to work with. He has delivered weekly meals to us, as we are without a kitchen right now. My 10 year old has already asked if we could keep him even after the kitchen is done. We definitely will. I cannot say enough about his creative, delicious dishes. He also communicates weekly about the menu (and is open to modifications, if necessary) and is prompt with his deliveries. He prepares food to our diet (gluten free) and the fact that we want all of our foods organic, free range, etc. I look forward to continuing to work with Kirk for a long, long time.
If you're looking for a great caterer you don't need to look any further! Carol was absolutely awesome to work with and the food was fantastic!! My entire crew enjoyed the meal and complimented Carol on how good it was, they even enjoyed the leftovers today! We will all look forward to Carol catering all our future luncheons!!
Clarissa and her team were professional, flexible, and anticipated our needs as clients. AND, the food was amazing.
Kristin catered our annual holiday luncheon this year. It was the first time I was putting on together for the firm, so I really wanted to offer something special. Kristin put together a delicious, gourmet lunch that was a cut above what we have experienced in the past. So many people complimented and thanked me. The portions were generous (we had lots of leftovers) and she worked with us to get something really wonderful with the budget we had to work with. I will definitely use Kristin again!
It has always been a genuine pleasure to work with Mark Avila. He has helped us host in-home dinners for our First Class members on several occasions. Working with Mark always gave me peace of mind when hosting monthly dinners for 10-12 of our guests each time. His attention to health, wellness and creative details made for our guests best experience and our best value. Mark prepares delicious, fresh and healthy food. He is always very engaging while educating you on the carefully curated ingredients and how he prepared them -- all with the utmost professionalism and panache. Hire him!
Josh is an incredibly talented chef and a great parson to have around. My family and I have enjoyed everything he's cooked for us and we continue to be amazed at his creativity and versatility. Josh's food is so flavorful and delicious, it's easy to forget how healthy everything is. Having Josh cook for us has been a great learning experience too. He's taught us a lot about about healthy living and inspired us to make better choices, even when we eat out.
Her food is creative, tasty, and she gives a beautiful presentation. She will work with your ideas to give you an experience you will never forget!
Chef Bailey and Bailey's Catering always does a great job with food for our church. Very professional and reasonable with rates. Savory tasting dishes and enjoyable flavor profiles!
Mikey has been a great addition! He's very creative, responsive, professional and is very flexible! We've enjoyed having him in our home and his meals are delicious!
The overall experience was exceptional and working with Maya was truly an amazing experience! The staff was professional and the food was delicious! Everything about the service provided was memorable and would recommend them to anyone needing a quality caterer. They took the stress off and allowed us to focus on the wedding. I can’t express how much I appreciate their service and how we were able to enjoy the wedding. Again, a big thank you to BellaRu Catering!
You catered my daughters wedding. Small intimate affair in our home. It felt like the RITZ CARLTON!!! The food and desserts were amazing. The look of the party was more than what my daughter ever hoped for. Thank you for the amazing experience
Cheffield Events & Catering has to be one of the best caterers we have hired for the office. The food smelled and tasted amazing. Everyone was going back for seconds and thirds!!! We are a picky bunch, but we will be using Cheffield's in the future. They were prompt, professional and the presentations was great. We loved that they printed up a menu for our small gathering. We would recommend Cheffield Events & Catering for catering, and we hope to do many events with them.
Three Legged Tacos was perfect for our Volunteer Recognition event! They were able to set up a cooking station in our auditorium and serve fresh, custom order tacos to all of our guests. The food was creative and delicious. We got so many compliments and our guests commented that they would like to have Three Legged Tacos at their event as well! Thanks so much!
